About Dilshan Jayasinha

I help people learn Sinhala, the main Sri Lankan language, with the minimum needed effort. I spend my days obsessively deconstructing the Sinhala language (I'm WEIRD like that) and I share what I discover through video tutorials, audio podcasts, flash cards, and blog posts (I'm FUN like that) and oh, I even give away a free copy of my Sinhala phrases eBook (I'm AWESOME like that!). This blog is for anyone interested in learning “good-enough” Sinhala but who doesn’t have the time, the need, or is just too damn lazy to become an expert in it.
